Soft as a feather.

I came across this beautiful feather coverlet the other day, and just had to share!
I know the Black Swan movie is all over the place, perhaps that's why this captivated me, who knows?

I have been trying to figure out if it's an old vintage piece (I think it is) or a new(er) fashion piece.... Looks light as a feather on one hand, and heavy, due to the sheer amount of feathers, all at the same time! I try to imagine how many hours it has taken to make this. Is it a prop for the ballet? Wonder who would wear something like this?

It's so outrageous, it would be a shame if it didn't see the light of day!!!

What's the story??

  1. I think it's probably old. You can see a bit of the satin lining on the top and those feathers just don't look like something you could find easily today. I wonder if they're goose?

  2. The only thing I am certain of is that there is ONE cold bird out there somewhere!

  3. It's gorgeous! And I would have to agree that it is Black Swan-ey fabulous! Enjoy the lovely day, Kellie xx

  4. ha! Love Divine's comment!

    I think it's vintage but who knows...quite often they make something to look old and style it to look vintage but i'd say it was made a while ago. Beautiful.

  5. Oh, I love it. So cool...and yes, very reminiscent of Black Swan!


Don't be shy... let me know what you think.
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
